Lillard had 21 points and nine assists to help th Trail Blazers beat the short-handed Chicago Bulls 105-87 on Friday night.

However, Mike Dunleavy's flagrant foul on Lillard in the third quarter, followed by Taj Gibson's painful left ankle injury, marred Portland's sixth straight win.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- After a rare four-day layoff between games, Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr admitted he had a few concerns coming into Friday night's game against the Utah Jazz.

Just like they've done most of the season, the Warriors quickly put Kerr at ease.

Andre Iguodala scored 17 points, Harrison Barnes had 14 points and 11 rebounds and the Golden State Warriors used a blistering start to beat the Utah Jazz 101-88 for their fourth straight win.

DENVER -- The Denver Nuggets were struggling and scuffling when they left for the road a week ago. Five games later they look like the team coach Brian Shaw envisioned.

Kenneth Faried and Arron Afflalo scored 19 points each, Wilson Chandler had 18 and Denver beat the New Orleans Pelicans 117-97 on Friday night.

Danilo Gallinari had 17 points and JaVale McGee 14 for the Nuggets, who have won four of their last five after starting the season 1-6. They took two of three on the road last weekend and have won two straight at Pepsi Center to even their home record at 3-3.

DALLAS -- Dirk Nowitzki and the rest of the Dallas starters left it to the reserves to finish off the highest point total for the Mavericks in more than five years.

Nowitzki scored 23 points before sitting the entire fourth quarter, and the Mavericks used the NBA's highest-scoring offense to roll to a 140-106 victory against the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night.

The Mavericks won their sixth straight game overall and fourth in a row against the Lakers, who were swept by Dallas in the regular season for the first time in 2013-14.

John Wall helps Wizards send Cavs below .500 after 3rd straight loss (November 22, 2014)

WASHINGTON -- LeBron James lost the battle for an offensive rebound and stewed in frustration while everyone else ran downcourt, leaving his Cleveland Cavaliers teammates to defend 4-on-5 at the other end while the game was still in the balance in the fourth quarter.

The Cavaliers went the final 9 minutes without scoring a field goal in Friday night's 91-78 loss to the Washington Wizards, a third consecutive loss and one that puts James under .500 more than 10 games into a season for the first time in six years.

Looking for reasons? Start with lack of hustle, lack of teamwork. James was slow to get back more than once in that fourth quarter, something he conceded is "never a good example'' for a team leader. Asked about his team's body language, he said flatly: "It's not good."

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Reggie Jackson sat silently in the locker room, slumped down in a chair with his arms crossed, a towel over his shoulders and ice on his knees.

Minutes earlier, he missed what would have been a game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer, and the Brooklyn Nets held on for a 94-92 win over Oklahoma City on Friday night. The Thunder lost their fifth straight and now have the league's second-longest losing streak.

Jackson, who led the Thunder with 21 points and eight assists, had played one of his better games of the season before the miss. He went for the 3-pointer and the win instead of the two and overtime.

MINNEAPOLIS -- The San Antonio Spurs have opened defense of their fifth NBA title in underwhelming fashion. A blowout of the short-handed Minnesota Timberwolves did little to convince coach Gregg Popovich that the precision and beauty they played with last year was just around the corner.

"It wasn't a fair fight," he said.

Tony Parker scored 28 points in 25 minutes and the Spurs cruised past a Timberwolves team missing four starters 121-92 on Friday night.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- After dealing with a stomach virus that affected nearly half the team earlier in the week, the Memphis Grizzlies recovered enough to get their 21st straight regular season home victory.

Marc Gasol matched his career high with 32 points, Zach Randolph added 16 points and 16 rebounds, and the Grizzlies beat the Boston Celtics 117-100 on Friday night.

"With the stomach virus that we all had, I think, the guys are still coming back from that," said reserve forward Jon Leuer, who had a season-high 19 points. "We are still feeling a little run down, but it's just a matter when you step between the lines you can't make any excuses. You just have to go play."

TORONTO -- With a visit to Cleveland to face LeBron James coming up on Saturday, Raptors coach Dwane Casey was worried his team might overlook the Milwaukee Bucks.

"If we don't come out to take care of business, they can embarrass you," Casey warned before the game. "They'll spank you like you stole something."

Turns out Casey had nothing to worry about. His team took care of the spanking, then added in some embarrassment, too.

Paul Millsap had 15 points and 12 rebounds for Atlanta, which snapped a two-game skid.
